Hey everyone! In accordance with the Rust 2018 release schedule, it’s time for the release of the first release candidate for Rust 2018.
To try out Rust 2018 RC1, install the beta toolchain:
> rustup install beta > rustc +beta --version rustc 1.30.0-beta.2 (7a0062e46 2018-09-19)
This beta of Rust 1.30 is a bit different than a normal beta: it has the feature flags for Rust 2018 turned on. This means you can kick the tires, and let us know of any issues.
You’ll probably want to migrate some of your existing code as well as start new projects. If you do these things, please post diffs or links to source, we’d love to check out what things will look like!
I’m happy to answer any questions on this thread.
